Who we are?
ChangeFusion Nepal is a non-governmental organization founded in September 2008 channels the opportunities creatively for aspiring change makers in diverse fields within social entrepreneurship. We support those social ventures and individuals who create value for People, Planet and Profit using four components: Mentorship, Knowledge, Funding and Networking.
Focus: To create successful social enterprises that impacts the daily lives of people in Nepal.
Vision: A society where aspiring social entrepreneurs are provided with the necessary resources to create long lasting social and economic benefits through entrepreneurship, networking and innovation.
Mission: To support and empower social entrepreneurs in Nepal with original ideas, solutions, dedication and vision for social change - in order to transform their dreams into reality.
Why is this so important?
In case of Nepal, where majority of population are at the clutches of unemployment, migration and lack of opportunities, ChangeFusion Nepal supports and empowers social entrepreneurs with original ideas, solutions, dedication and vision for social change. The social entrepreneurs are self-reliant who have the passion, girth and talent yet they remain shadowed in the society. The purpose of ChangeFusion Nepal is thus, to identify, inspire, reward and support social entrepreneurs/ entrepreneurs who promote the development of communities and contribute to the nation building process.
What we do?
ChangeFusion Nepal identifies the 4 ‘I’s in social ventures which are as follows: - 1. Intention: The motive behind its establishment; whether it is profit making or social welfare. 2. Impact: The magnitude of positive effect and the venture’s contribution to the society, environment and communities. 3. Innovation: The social entrepreneurs ability to adopt innovate ideas in their venture. 4. Income: The venture’s prospect of business scaling and assessment of its sustainable income generation sources. After identification, we provide assistance on the 4 key areas mentioned below:
